Full Day Conference and Seminar Catering Packages

We provide all catering requirements at Willow Pond.  We don’t allow guests to bring their own catering on-site.  Nor do we allow off-site caterers.

Our venue staff will work hard to ensure that your guests come to see and appreciate the pleasant environment of our function centre.

We are available for:

  • Breakfast meetings

  • Full day seminar catering

  • Half day seminar catering options

  • Evening dinner conferences

Full day events are required to use one of our four full day seminar catering packages which are inclusive of:

  • Tea and coffee on arrival

  • Morning tea and coffee, with a single choice from the refreshment list

  • One of the lunch options listed below

  • Afternoon tea and coffee (if required)

  • Full Day Seminar Catering Package #One

    This selection is automatically provided for groups of less than 25 guests (and no more than 30).

    Lunch is provided from our restaurant and will be served either in the restaurant or in your seminar room.  Soft drinks and orange juice are included.

    A “limited menu” pre-order form will be handed out at the start of each day and collected during Morning Tea.  We will vary the lunch selection for multiple-day events.

  • Breakfast

    We also have available both set menu breakfast (minimum 20 guests) and buffet breakfast (minimum 50 guests) for early starts.

  • Half Day Seminar Catering Options

    For those half day seminars or evening conferences which do not require a meal, we do have refreshment options such as tea/coffee & scones etc.

We also have various platters, both hot and cold, that can be arranged for “after event” nibbles, along with having our bar facilities made available.

For larger conferences, our function catering and function beverage packages are also available.
